The Costa Rican team disappointed last Wednesday to the fans after losing 7-0 against Spain in the debut in the World Cup in Qatar 2022, which means the worst defeat in the team’s history in the world cups.
“It was a pretty complicated game, we never woke up, very slow the game of Costa Rica and with the pain of my heart as a tico, unfortunately it was not enough and there was a great lack of love, of passion. Today was not the Costa Rica we expected“, the former soccer player and World Cup player in South Korea and Japan 2022, William Sunsing, told EFE.
The press of Costa Rica highlighted the “worst ridicule in history” and the “humiliating rout” against Spain 7-0 in the debut of both teams from Group E of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
But not only the Costa Rican press was alarmed by the defeat by Spain; so did the international press, such as the Mexican journalist from ESPN david faitelson.
“Costa Rica must “renew itself”. He can’t settle for coming to the World Cup to make a fool of himself…“, he wrote in a tweet.
This message bothered former Guatemalan striker Carlos el Pescado Ruiz, who was quick to respond: “Since 1986, the best team that has represented CONCACAF in the World Cups has been Costa Rica, reaching 4th place. What is this ghost talking about, always belittling Central America.“.
